Radical cyclization

Pagination : 46-50
Sous-thème : Les réactions de cyclisation

This article gives an overview of the state of the art in radical cyclizations. General data on radical cyclizations are given in the first part. They include a historical background, which puts in perspective the two main developments devoted to cascades leading to polycyclic complex molecules - including total syntheses of natural products - and asymmetric cyclizations.
